Persistent, fine bubbles provide a classic mousse. Aromas of green apples and papaya with notes of toasted brioche. The palate is impressively clean and balanced with moreish fruit driven character and a long, seductive finish.

With prime vineyards in Casablanca, Maipo, Rapel and Bio-Bio and access to the newest and best clones in Chile (through Jose Guilisasti, brother of Emiliana’s General Manager Rafael who runs Chile’s foremost nursery) Emiliana is a very substantial and impressive organisation. Emiliana is one of the world’s most important producers of Organic and Biodynamic wines. They have a total of 997 hectares under vine of which 923ha are IMO and Demeter certified organic. As South America’s largest organic producer, their spectacular vineyard and winery at Los Robles has the added benefit of being biodynamic and features the sensory delights of roaming Alpacas, dung heaps and dynamised biodynamic mixtures to treat the vineyards.

Grapes are hand-harvested from Fundo Casablanca, La Vinilla zone; La Quebrada Vineyard in the foothills of the Coastal Mountains, 370 m above sea level, frm late February through to early March. The vines are trellised to vertical shoot position and drip irrigated.

The grapes were hand-picked into bins and transported immediately from the Casablanca Valley to our Palmeras winery in the Colchagua Valley. Upon arriving the grapes were refrigerated overnight and pressed the following day. The must was decanted to obtain clean juice for fermentation. Upon completion of the fermentation process, the new wine was left on its fine lees and stirred weekly (battonage) to enhance complexity. This base wine was then subjected to its second fermentation using the charmat method and a second battonage process. 3 months in stainless steel tanks followed by another 2 months after the foam was developed. The resulting sparkling wine was filtered and adjustments made for bottling.

This wine pairs well with dishes with mild cream sauces, raw and cooked shellfish, fresh summer salads, sushi, trout, and desserts made with red fruits and chocolate.
